NAME

git-mv - Move or rename a file, a directory, or a symlink  

SYNOPSIS

git-mv <options>... <args>...  

DESCRIPTION

This script is used to move or rename a file, directory or symlink.

git-mv [-f] [-n] <source> <destination>
git-mv [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> ... <destination directory>
In the first form, it renames <source>, which must exist and be either a file, symlink or directory, to <destination>. In the second form, the last argument has to be an existing directory; the given sources will be moved into this directory.

The index is updated after successful completion, but the change must still be committed.  

OPTIONS

-f

Force renaming or moving of a file even if the target exists

-k

Skip move or rename actions which would lead to an error condition. An error happens when a source is neither existing nor controlled by GIT, or when it would overwrite an existing file unless -f is given.

-n

Do nothing; only show what would happen
